College of Idaho football returns home after historic win

The Yotes face Rocky Mountain at 1 p.m. Saturday at Simplot Stadium after scoring the most points (48) and surrendering the fewest (17) since reviving the program last year in a rout of Montana State-Northern.

The C of I (2-4, 2-3 Frontier) and its defense will have to switch gears. Montana State-Northern’s offense focused on the run, but Rocky Mountain (3-3, 2-3) quarterback Chase White leads the Frontier with 1,603 passing yards.

With wildcat quarterback J.J. Hyde (Vallivue High) out for the season, the College of Idaho has turned to A.J. Martin (Idaho Falls High), who ran for 34 yards and four TDs last week. Martin leads the Yotes with seven touchdowns.

Receiver Austin Diffey (Eagle High) tops the Yotes with 24 catches for 267 yards, but he has yet to find the end zone.
